New Biomass course launched at Centre for Alternative Technology

The Centre for Alternative Technology’s new HETAS approved short course for biomass installers starts in spring. This short course is a fantastic opportunity to learn the technical skills to become an accredited installer of biomass heating systems. The first course of 2013 will begin March 25th and includes full board accommodation on-site in the award winning WISE building.

Biomass fuels will become increasingly financially beneficial in 2013. The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a financial scheme to encourage low-carbon heating systems. A non-domestic RHI scheme was launched in 2011 while an incentive for domestic use is intended for 2013. HETAS is recognised by the government to approve solid fuel heating appliances. This includes the registration of competent biomass installers.

Successful completion of CAT’s biomass course will allow HETAS registrants to install biomass appliances. The course covers modern wood fuelled heating as well as boiler installation and control systems. Participants will be enabled to professionally advise on fuel types, safe storage options & system design.

CAT has an established reputation for excellence in the field. Our short courses incorporate practical sessions overseen by experienced professionals. This course will be no exception. Participants will use commissioned boilers in a specially designed training facility. This hands-on training experience will be complemented by class-room based theory and study. All of our tutors have unrivalled experience and impartial academic knowledge.

There are three biomass installers courses this year at CAT. The second course is taking place late in July while the final course of 2013 will be on the first week of October. Make sure you book early to avoid missing out on this great opportunity. Full details can be found on our website.

Attendance of the short course will cost £1,000 (inc VAT), which includes accommodation, materials and fees. A one day course is also available for qualified heating engineers or plumbers who have yet to complete the HETAS H003 and H004.

CAT is offering writers and journalists from relevant media outlets the opportunity to particpate in a day long course free of charge to offer them the experience of particpating in one of CAT’s courses. For further information please contact kim.bryan@cat.org.uk
